About this title

Synopsis:

DID YOU KNOW? * Forty-four men were "hanged by the neck until dead," on Oakalla's gallows... * For many year prisoners were forbidden to speak, except by special permission from the Warden... * During the 1950s and 1960s, in attempts to rehabilitate offenders by improving their physical appearance, more than 600 prisoners received free plastic surgery... * More than 850 prisoners escaped from Oakalla during its 79-year history. The most notable occurred just after midnight on New Year's Day 1988, when 13 maximum security inmates escaped from an underg(r)ound segregation unit....
